Musical Instrument Museum – MIM in Brussels

My travel time has now come to an end- almost. Brussels is my last destination as this is the hub where I will take my flight home to Australia. I had a day to spent so I opted to just stay in the city center. This is another museum that I came across by accident. The building was quite intriguing and when I learned that this is a museum for musical instruments, I even got more excited.

The museum has thousands of musical instruments on display. Instruments from all classifications are found in here wherein each classification and region are displayed accordingly in each level of the building.

They give headphones to visitors so each could hear what a specific instrument sounds like. You just need to stand on  a designated area (in front of an instrument) and the track would play. In some instruments,the audio clip would be long, exceeding five minutes. This visit has been therapeutic to me as I feel relaxed whenever I hear good music. In addition, although the instruments displayed are predominantly European, there are some from places such as Tibet and Africa which were really awesome to hear!
